New York City Budget Analysis

NYC's Budget Visualized

For any city, the spending budget of the local government is a hot topic. In the case of New York City the stakes are a bit higher. It's one of the world's most densely populated cities and operates on just 81 millions dollars. That might sound like a lot of money, but not when you consider that the population of NYC is 8 million. That means each New Yorker gets $10 for the whole year. In New York City, every dollar counts.
Large budgets split up in many directions gets complicated quickly. This data visualization shows how budget dollars are allocated in broad strokes to get a quick handle on the ratio of dollars allocated.

This is a Data Story example

Data Stories are a tool to help bridge the gap between data and knowledge. Combining data visualization embeds with custom content that can range from text to videos, they create an inclusive way to understand the message and meaning behind data. Data stories are also a good way to combine and use different technologies side by side, like embedding an ArcGIS generated map and comparing that to one of DKAN's auto-generated graphs.



Embed Visualizations

Embedding a visualization from another platform is easy as copying and pasting the embed code on the Data Story content type. Create infinite amount of combined stories bringing in content from ArcGIS, CartoDB, Leaflet, Mapbox and more.

Create Context

Leveraging Drupal's innate ability to create and manage content in an easy and flexible way, Data Stories create context and further explain data in a user-friendly way, inside the same platform where that data is published. This helps generate a circular experience that is usable for non-technical users as well as developers.
